ABOUT

When renowned crime novelist Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer) is found dead at his estate just after his 85th birthday, the inquisitive and debonair Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is mysteriously enlisted to investigate. From Harlan’s dysfunctional family to his devoted staff, Blanc sifts through a web of red herrings and self-serving lies to uncover the truth behind Harlan’s untimely death. With an all-star ensemble cast including  Jamie Lee Curtis, Don Johnson, Michael Shannon and Toni Collette, Knives Out is a witty and stylish whodunit guaranteed to keep audiences guessing until the very end.

REVIEWS

Knives Out is one of the most purely entertaining films in years. It is the work of a cinematic magician, one who keeps you so focused on what the left hand is doing that you miss the right. And, in this case, it’s not just a wildly fun mystery to unravel but a scathing bit of social commentary about where America is in 2019. . . Directing a wildly charismatic cast who are all-in on what he’s doing, Johnson confidently stays a step or two ahead of his audience, leaving them breathless but satisfied at the end.”  rogerebert.com

There’s genuinely thrilling ingenuity here and while some of his attempts to give the film a contemporary, Trump’s America spin are a little too clunky, other similar touches work so well that you’re willing to forget them.”  The Guardian

“Even though it’s in the style of Agatha Christie, Johnson has written and directed a uniquely American whodunit. The Thrombeys will remind you more of the upper-crust clans on “Succession” or “Arrested Development” than Miss Marple and the citizens of St. Mary Mead. It’s a breath of fresh air for a genre caked in dust.”  New York Post
